For about a decade, Alyce Lomax has written about and analyzed stocks for The Motley Fool. She often writes about retail and consumer goods stocks, but her investing passion is in incorporating socially responsible investing factors into her analysis. She manages the real-money Prosocial Portfolio and writes a twice-weekly column specifically focused on environmental, social, and corporate governance issues for Fool.com. Her goal is to find stock ideas for investors who want to invest in positive businesses that will create positive portfolio returns as well. Long ago, she studied English literature at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and believes that literary-style deep analysis is just as important as financials when assessing companies’ “stories” and standing in the world. Alyce also occasionally writes short fiction in her spare time, and even more occasionally it’s published.

Re: Are banks evil?

TMF doesn't censor writers. Lots of investors aren't that critical of banks/financial companies (I'd even say most), and would be perfectly willing to invest in them. I think that having the conversation of whether they're evil or not is a niche in [more]

Re: Sasquatch sighting at the SEC!

PS: Oops, one of my statements sounded weird, I of course DO try to educate and enrich (hopefully), it's just the "amusing" part that's hard to manage with some of the SRI/ESG topics!

Sasquatch sighting at the SEC!

The SRI/ESG beat isn't really the most light-hearted area so it's been a while since I felt I could kind of have a good time with something to educate, amuse and enrich (hopefully) -- I totally had the opportunity with this one.

Anyway, [more]

That dang Fire phone

I've posted before about how the whole Fire phone debacle has stuck in my craw as such a weird thing, when thinking about Amazon and strategy. I don't need to rehash all that again, but Fast Company has done a piece on just that [more]

Some "buy local" brilliance

Just ran across this on social media, and it's great. A little off-color humor serves as the catalyst, but that just paves the way for an amazing step by step description, in down-to-earth terms, of just why we pay more for certain types of [more]

Re: Nell Minnow: The case against divestment

And, yep, that's a great point. I really do prefer to try to screen in for positive. I love the shareholder activists who file their resolutions at companies like these, and if I did hold shares I'm sure in many cases I'd vote with them, but I [more]
